Our topic for the summer term is Rainforests. We will be looking at where rainforests are commonly found in the world and try to give some reasons for this. Children will be looking at the types of plants that grow in the rainforest and consider how the amount of sunlight and rain they can receive may affect their appearance. We will also be thinking carefully about who relies on the rainforests and what implications it may have on different groups of people if it is not properly cared for.
We will continue to write amazing poetry and build on our story writing by learning how to add suspense through detail, word choices and punctuation.
In art, we are focussing on creating mood through colour choice and shading. We will also experiment with creating our own tribal art to convey meanings as tribal art used to do.
